On or about April 19, at least a dozen members of Russia’s military intelligence agency, the GRU, purchase and craft an online persona by the same name to later release stolen emails and documents to the public.

The website claims it belongs to “American hacktivists,” but the cryptocurrency account used to purchase the domain name ties back to GRU Senior Lieutenant Aleksey Lukashev.

The following day, DNC consultant Alexandra Chalupa starts receiving warnings that her private email is under attack.

Beginning in June, the website is used to leak illegally obtained U.S. documents.
